It's 3rd February, the first day of rabbit year in Lunar calendar.
I'm glad to say happy prosperous Chinese New Year to all Chinese friends all over the world.
Like every year, there must be a huge parade in the town, featuring iconic lion dances, firecrackers, lanterns, and musics.
I've seen the fireworks last night and they're so beautiful. I was also glad to see my Chinese neighbors playing firecrackers with their kids. They're so happy. One of the little girls waved at me, asking me to join them but I refused and shouted back "it's okay".
Unlike the colorful fireworks, I've lost my spark.
I feel bad to have too much fun here while my other friends are facing the real danger and hard situation in Egypt. You know what's happening there.
Some of Malaysians have already safely arrived at Malaysia, and some of them are still stranded in Egypt. Just now I heard that Sabahan students are being cheated by Malaysia embassy. There are some discrimination where the plane that's sent to Egypt to collect Sabahan students were being used by other people (which were not in the list of evacuation plan).
I mean, Sabahans are Malaysians too okay. I don't quite understand why does it happens. If I were wrong, you guys are allowed to correct me.
These are some photos of protest signs carried by Egyptians. I got them from Damn Cool Pics.
They make no bones about the fact that they want President Mubarak out of power in Egypt, you see. They're so serious. Well, of course they're serious.
But these protests are bringing disaster to Malaysian students there.
I hope the government will do whatever it takes to help them all to get out of Egypt.
Ya Allah, please protect them and save them.
I really don't want any bad things happen to them. Let's pray for them, peepz.
Apart from that, there are other things that make me feel so down today.
It's shocking when I was told that my sister's dad-in-law had passed away this morning. We're all in glooming now. We just met him when we went to Tawau past few weeks ago, and he looked so fine and healthy. Well, death has no sound and smell. Wish he'll rest in peace and may Allah places him among the noble ones.
Another thing is that my grandma is detained in hospital ward again as she got heart attack and shortness of breath after she heard about the sad breaking news. Poor her.
We have to cancel the BBQ party that we suppose to held it tonight.
Too many things inside my head, and those things make me dizzy and sick. I felt like a grenade's exploded in my hands.
So not in the mood. I hope my grandma will recover.
